First off, subliminal advertisement for 4 fingers crispy chicken? Nope, it is not related to that fast food restaurant!

Many western cartoon characters from Hollywood has 4 fingers. Mickey mouse has 4 fingers. Papa smurf has 4 fingers.

However eastern cartoon characters from Japan has all 5 fingers. Naruto has 5 fingers. In the Japanese culture, the number 4 is associated with death. Because number 4 and death has very similar pronunciation. It is the same for Chinese language, where 4 and death sounds very similar.

Could this be the reason why the [W] [H] [O] poster uses 4 fingers? It would not surprised me if this is the actual reason. After all in post #53, you can see Lady Gaga showing her i l l u m i n a t i ONE EYE hand gestures.

How did this become the standard in the animation industry? Will cartoons always only have four fingers? We dig deep into one of the oldest animation questions in cartoon history.
